The world is nonlinear, we all know that. The need to accurately represent complex real-world phenomenon has increased given the demand on design and the increased competition in developing these designs. However, running simulations to capture these complex nonlinear behaviors can be very expensive and take several hours to run. This burden is magnified if the requirement is to optimize the design, as now, the solution time could potentially run in to multiple days! This is the motivation to come up with efficient and quicker solutions without compromising on accuracy. The Neuber correction is one such solution that allows the evaluation of plasticity in a structure via a linear analysis and therefore avoids having to run a full-fledged nonlinear analysis. This is particularly valuable in the design development phase when multiple such studies are needed to be run; the Neuber correction approach saves a significant amount of time and improves the overall workflow.
